    • D.

      Heavily

    Correct Answer
    A. Fatherly
    Explanation
    Young men always receive fatherly advice, but most of them don't care about that. This means that the advice they receive is similar to that of a father figure, who is typically older and more experienced. The word "fatherly" implies guidance, wisdom, and protection, which is often given by a father to his children. The other options, "weekly," "yearly," and "heavily," do not make sense in the context of receiving advice.

    • D.

      A chicken

    Correct Answer
    D. A chicken
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "a chicken" because the sentence is referring to a specific chicken that the person has eaten half of.

Therefore, "a chicken" is the most appropriate choice.

    Explanation
    A team of divers could pinpoint the "location" of the sunken ship. In this context, "location" refers to the specific place or position where the sunken ship is situated. The word "spot" can also imply a specific place, but it may not convey the same level of accuracy as "location" does. "Site" typically refers to a larger area or a specific plot of land, rather than a precise point. "Situation" does not accurately describe the physical placement of the sunken ship.

    C. Equipment
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "equipment" because the question states that Adidas is a chain selling high quality sports items. "Equipment" is a broad term that encompasses various items used for sports activities, such as clothing, shoes, accessories, and gear. This term is more appropriate than "instruments," "tools," or "weapons," which do not typically align with the products sold by Adidas.
